Units for a PSD from square of FT?

If I am looking to do a PSD plot on a signal $x(t)$ with units $m$ then the units I am expecting in the PSD would be $\frac{m^2}{Hz}$ but I can't seem to get this result from the following reasoning: ...

Conversion between DTFT in radians/sample to DTFT in cycles/sample

I have found that most commonly the DTFT is defined as: $X(\omega) = \sum_{n=-\infty}^{\infty} x[n]e^{-j \omega n}$. However the class I am taking frequently uses the DTFT expressed in "normalized ...

Correct SNIR computation units

I would like to know the correct units to make a SNIR computation. I am using the following formula: $$ \text{SNIR} = \frac{1}{\frac{1}{\text{SNR}} + \frac{1}{\text{CIR}}} $$ I have SNR in dB and ...

Convolution Input/output Units

How come are the units of convolution for LTI system not consistent? $$y(t)= \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} x(\tau)h(t-\tau)d\tau$$ $y(t)$ unit is volt, whereas the RHS has volt.time unit!!!!

Why is “$1/\mathrm{Hz}$” unchanged while converting$\mathrm{V}^2/\mathrm{Hz}$ to $\mathrm{dB}/\mathrm{Hz}$?

When computing power spectral density via Fourier transform and Parseval's theorem, one gets units of $V^2/Hz$ (e.g. Wiki). As a popular next step, the following unit conversion is widely used: $V^2/...

Normalizing Cepstrum by Energy

I have separately computed the cepstrum and the energy of a finite discrete-time signal. If the energy of the signal is high, we would expect (on average) larger cepstral values than if the energy of ...

What are the units of my data after an FFT?

Magnetometer measures the derivative of the magnetic field, or dB/dt, with an output in microvolts (mV). The Sampling rate is 128 Hz, so if we collect data for 2 minutes, $2 \times 60 \times 128=...

What is the difference between the PSD and the Power Spectrum?

Can any one explain the difference in the amplitude between the two and what does each one represents? For example, when using the pwelch algorithm in MATLAB how ...
